Makita VC2211MX1 Dust Extractor - Perfect for Home Renovations?

Let's take a typical renovation job; the attic conversion. Your customer has tasked you with turning their tatty attic space into a sleek new bedroom for the family. You've to fit a Velux window, demolish a chimney breast and install gyproc and new flooring.

So for the next 2 weeks you'll be working in their home and there's going to be dust. Lots of dust.

A key component of any builder who undertakes this sort of work - renovating a customer's home - is a good quality dust extractor. Along with your cordless circular saw, your nailer, your mitre saw and your drill driver, we're suggesting that the new 240V VC2211MX1 from Makita could be the perfect addition to your kit.

For starters, it's 240V with power take off. That has to be a top buying requirement, the ability to plug it into the mains wherever you need it, and then power your saw, for example, straight from the dust extractor.

In addition to this, it handles wet. So when your apprentice messes up and spills his can of Monster across a rug, you can quickly get that sorted out without fuss and stress.

It's also a compact machine while still offering you 22 litres of dry capacity within the tough stainless steel drum, while only weighing 16.3kg. It's the ideal dust extractor and vacuum cleaner for hauling up into tight attic spaces, for example.

Once in situ, you've got a choice of a 28mm or 38mm hose, and it comes with the necessary adaptors so that it'll connect straight on to the dust extractor port of your circular saw, for example. Moving it about is a breeze due to the big castor wheels at the rear of the drum, while the smaller wheel at the front can be locked into so that it won't get dragged about your workspace.

Set it up, leave it, it's ready when you are.

Dust extraction is a serious business, so it's great that this compact and tough vac has M-Class filtering properties, meaning you - and your customers - are safe from those harmful tiny dust particles. The filter process Makita has built in includes a powder filter, damper and pre-filter. This is perfect for keeping the dust absolutely under control.

This keeps you safe, but also helps keep down the amount of clear-up work you need to do at the end of the day; we know you want to leave the place looking spic and span for when the customer gets home from work at the end of their day.

When it comes to the clean-up, the unit has big bumpers to help protect walls and furniture, another huge benefit.

At the end of the day it's stowable in the van due to it's small footprint, and thanks to the flat top design, other gear can be stored on top of it for transport.
